BISHOPTHORPE | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Jeremiah Clarke, 1673-1707
1 ALL lands to God, in joyful sounds,
Aloft your voices raise.
2 Sing forth the honour of his name,
And glorious make his praise.
3 Say unto God, How terrible
In all thy works art thou!
Through thy great power thy foes to thee
Shall be constrained to bow.
4 All on the earth shall worship thee,
They shall thy praise proclaim
In songs: they shall sing cheerfully
Unto thy holy name.
5 Come, and the works that God hath wrought
With admiration see:
In dealing with the sons of men
Most terrible is he.
6 Into dry land the sea he turned,
And they a passage had;
Even marching through the flood on foot,
There we in him were glad.
7 He ruleth ever by his power;
His eyes the nations see:
O let not the rebellious ones
In pride exalted be.
8 Ye people, bless our God; aloud
The voice speak of his praise;
9 Our soul in life who safe preserves,
Our foot from sliding stays.
10 For thou didst prove and try us, Lord,
As men do silver try;
11 Brought'st us into the net, and mad'st
Bands on our loins to lie.
12 Thou hast made men ride o'er our heads;
Through fire and flood we passed;
But yet into abundance great
Thou hast us brought at last.
13 I'll bring burnt-offerings to thy house;
To thee my vows I'll pay,
14 Which my lips uttered, my mouth spake,
When trouble on me lay.
15 Burnt-sacrifices of fat sheep,
Incense of rams I'll bring;
Of bullocks and of goats I will
Present an offering.
16 All that fear God, come, hear, I'll tell
What he did for my soul.
17 I with my mouth unto him cried,
My tongue did him extol.
18 If in my heart I sin regard,
The Lord me will not hear:
19 But surely God me heard, and to
My prayer's voice gave ear.
20 O let the Lord, our gracious God,
For ever blessed be,
Who turned not my prayer from him,
Nor yet his grace from me.
